Heh: Cory Booker’s not the only one sending bashful Twitter messages to Portland strippers. Lynsie Lee, the Portland-area stripper who (sort of) flirted with Newark mayor Cory Booker on Twitter, has maintained a year-long Twitter-based friendship with New York Magazine social media editor Stefan Becket (pictured above, on the right), who is almost certainly the most famous social media editor in New York City. The pair finally met in person, at a Soho bar, just two weeks before BuzzFeed reported on Lee’s private messages with Booker.

Benny Johnson at BuzzFeed reports that Newark Mayor and U.S. Senate hopeful Cory Booker exchanged private direct messages on Twitter with a Portland stripper named Lynsie Lee last February. “The East Coast loves you, and by the East Coast I mean me,” Booker wrote in one. Lee and Booker both appeared in a movie about Twitter called Follow Friday, which appears to be why they started tweeting at each in the first place.
